Hey folks,

Are the brightness controls on the side of the 30" ACD supposed to work when it's hooked up to a Windows box? Perhaps they rely on Apple Mac's to function? Incase you hadn't guessed, they don't work in this case, and I don't have a Mac I can hook it up to.

Chars!

To be fair, it's two clicks away on both OSes and it would have been nice if Apple had provided hardware controls.

Well, to go further into controls and stuff, it is both faster and way easier in OSX.

custom drivers that supposedly allow brightness controls for ACD on XP.
